    Recently spayed dog barely eating..

    I have a 5 year old dog (pic below) which was spayed almost 6 days ago. She barely drinks or eats anything at all. She just nibbles a few small bites of food and then just leaves it. The dog had a very healthy appetite before this... eating about (2) 16oz cans of food, and a bowl of dry dog food a day, on top of an occasional rabbit. :eek: I'm not sure what to do at all. I keep her inside most of the time... mainly due to coyotes and stray dogs. I let her outside one morning, phone rings, I come inside to answer, hear yelping... of course I know what was going on. So I take her to be spayed, and she wasn't pregnant. I feel awful, I did this needlessly it seems. It's driving me crazy just watching her lay around looking sad and barely eating. :( Is this normal for dogs to act this way after being fixed?

    Any help will be appreciated.

    No it is not normal. I would get back with the vet in the morning. Even with a temporary problem, you did the right thing. It should save you and her no end of problems. For one thing, the female coyotes may try to kill her when she comes in season if not spayed.
